When my step-daughter started kindergarden last year I cried. I was also taking pictures of her in the school cafeteria. This year when she started 1st grade, I got a little tiery eyed. But it's a happy feeling of how much I am proud of her and how fast she is growing!

I did! My son started this week. That little wave before he got on the bus just broke my heart. He looked so tiny climbing those big school bus steps. I had a sad moment. He had a great day though. I have never sent him to daycare that wasn't family and he didn't go to nursery school so I was a worried about him being away from home for the whole day. He handled it like a champ though.

I did! :) It felt like I'm letting him go into an uncertain world but truly after days of sending him off to school you'll feel better after seeing he's looking forward to school! I guess its just mommy's way of feeling you can't keep him forever. :)
